Lovely property and location. Excellent host. Just what we needed. Been here on several occasions and looking forward to going again.

Mr M,

Lovely property and friendly host Sara was on hand to help throughout our stay. Property was clean with comfy beds and en suites to all bedrooms. Local farm shop was only a short walk away and had good quality foods available. Note the drive up to the barn is on a bit of a slope so one of my elderly parents struggled a little when going for a walk but this didn't detract from a most enjoyable weekend away.

Mrs K,


This detached luxury Cardiff cottage is set on a small holding with one other small holiday cottage (Llety Tyn y Coed) within 50 acres of woodland and countryside, and only a very short walk to popular local restaurant, pub and organic farm shop selling fresh fish and meat as well as freshly baked bread, Welsh cheese, jams and chutneys. In the shop, you'll also find ready meals prepared by the local restaurant for those times when you don't want to cook.. To the South the village of Creigiau is only 1 mile away and that includes a golf course, local shop and another pub. 1 mile to the North is another village, Efail Isaf. This also has a good local pub.

Cardiff is only a short drive away but there is also a bus service that runs directly into the City Centre from just under 1 mile away. Sophia Gardens is now a test match cricket venue and hosted the first Ashes match of 2015.
